its really your choice, but if you go to psypokes.com, and on the lft bar under diamond and pearl, it says some stuff about version exclusives and stuff.

but i picked diamond, but its still your choice.

with wifi, which game you get matters very little. The main thing is whether you want Palkia or Dialga, as getting one of those off the GTS or wifi trade thread can be difficult. The rest of the version exclusives are easily obtained.

Yeah, basically the main thing is if you prefer Palkia or Dialga. Palkia is only weak against Dragon. Dialga has a few more weaknesses but a lot more resistances. Also, I think Dialga has better overall stats, but Palkia is speedier. Hope that helps you decide.

I picked Diamond just cause I like Dialga better then Palkia. But with Wi-Fi, there really isn't any difference. Just ask on the trading boards for what you want and tell people what your offering.

check on the version exclusives! if you don't have wireless internet connection or friends that have the other version and are willing to trade, you need to know which you like better.

Well competitive wise Pearl offers salamence and a few other killers but really the versions are the same. As mentioned before you can go see the version exclusices. I have both but use Pearl as my competitive game and Diamond as my fun game.

EDIT: My bad lol I have been looking at Garchomp all day it just came to me so easily.

I noticed over the generations that people tend to prefer one version over the other (And I think its because of the pokemon on the cartridge)

People Prefered...

Red over Blue
Silver over Gold
Ruby over Sapphire
Diamond over Pearl

it look to be that diamond is the over all winner, like them i would get diamond, but you could just be a underdog or diffrent and get pearl........ but when i saw the version exclusive i look at pincer and scyther. diamond has scyther and you guess'd it pearl has pincer.

I don't know. Maybe battling each other Dialga would win (maybe. I mean, I've never tested it before), but Palkia is faster and totally saved my butt at this Pokemon competition at Game Stop. If I had used Dialga, I don't think I would have been able to pull it off. But anyway (before this degrades into a Dialga V.S. Palkia debate, which I really hope I didn't start by posting this), If you have Wi-fi, choose based on if you prefer Dialga or Palkia. If you don't have Wi-fi, look at the version exclusives and decide for yourself (If that is the case, I might go for Diamond, but that's just me).

Well if you teach Palkia Focus Blast or Earth Power you will have a chance in winning against Dialga.
Its even.
I mean like,

Dialga
Roar of Time
Palkia
Earth Power

Dialga wins

Palkia
Earth Power
Dialga
Roar of Time (miss)
Palkia
Earth power

Palkia wins

and well you know what happens if Focus Blast hits or misses Dialga.

But there are ways around that:

Palkia used Substitute.
Dialga used Roar of Time.
Palkia used Earth Power.
Dialga must recharge.
Palkia used Earth Power.
Dialga fainted.

(which is why you'd use Dragon Pulse, but that's weaker and may or may not OHKO)

but just because Palkia can bet Dialga, or vice versa, doesn't make it a better pokemon to have. Depending on what you want for the rest of your (uber) team, Palkia/Dialga could be better than the other.

Since Giratina is available on both games, it's up to them, depending on their uber team. Palkia/Dialga will not necessarily have to take it on.

I chose Pearl, but it really just depends on your personal preference. :) You can check this page out to decide:

make your dad happy and buy the one which u find for a lower price

unless u deside to buy the opposite

pokediamond, they're going to be the same price unless he can find one used and not the other.

Palkia's attack is better than Dialga's, and there are statistics to prove this. I'm just to lazy to calculate it :roll:

So go with whichever one you want. Version exclusives don't make much of a difference due to GTS.

well, as a point as well, only pokemon such as hondour and bagon are only in pearl, while in diamond, you can only get aron, larvitar, ect. also, if you wish to chose between the two main legendaries, Palkia only has one weakness, which is dragon, while Dialga has several. but, the choice is entirely up to you.
